3-7 vs 5-9

Postby dreamingmama1018 » Sat Sep 26, 2015 5:12 pm

Help! My dr prescribed me Clomid and I'm supposed to start it soon CD 5-9 as far as I know I ovulate on my own and I do not have PCOS (test on Tue to confirm) I've heard that 5-9 gives a good mature egg and 3-7 give multiple eggs if this is true and I already O on my own shouldn't I be taking it 3-7?

I'm in the same boat as you. I've taken it 5-9 several times. I recently tried 3-7 and my chart looked awesome and I ovulated on cd15 rather than cd17 or 18. I like it better. But, I got pregnant/miscarried on my first cycle of 5-9. I ovulate on my own as well, but have low progesterone. I tried 3-7 without my dr's permission. Didn't hurt anything :)

I have taken clomid three times. The first time, 5-9, I had a chemical pregnancy. The second, 3-7, I had nothing, but a lot of pain. Then I got pregnant my third cycle 5-9 and miscarried at 7w3d. I'm taking Clomid again 5-9 now and Dr will give me prometrium after a positive test. 5-9 works for me! Good luck.

I ovulate on my own and did 2-6 and it worked on the first try. I ovulated earlier than usual on CD 13. Who knows why it worked, I had 4 early losses before this (10 weeks 3 days now). I also was on prometrium 200 mg 3 times a day vaginally.
